Draft, foggy orange. tastes of white wine and spicy barrel oak, totally fine and interesting iteration of the Hefe which this one is big and round. Be curious to try a 50 50 blend with non barrel aged, more subtlety less sharpness.

Draft. Clear orange pour, thin semi-fizzy white head. Wood and earth aroma. Taste is yeasty, smokey and yes, has a fair bit of wood.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
Tap at BarHop. Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma has a soft oakiness and a bit of bright fruitiness. Not terribly banana flavored but has a nice estery berry flavour. Fairly wheaty with a very light smoky phenolic flavour. Pretty lovely beer actually.

On tap at Bar Hop. Sounded really interesting it delivers in taste. Lots of wood and farmhouse smelling yeast. Not the style but good drinkability.Very yellow body.

On tap at bar hop. Hazy orange pour, medium delicate carbonation, quick white head. Aroma is earthy, vegetal, cheese, banana, nutty, toffee malt. Sweet and yeasty. Banana and wine throughout to a medium, boozy (whiskey) finish. Good for a hef, if not the best balance.

Tap, pours hazy yellow, aroma is wheaty and spicy, got a bit of a winey taste, with a nice spice from the wheat and overall nice offering

Draught at Indie Alehouse. Pours a hazy gold with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Mild aroma of bubblegum, banana and wheat. Flavour is lightly spicy along with wheat, banana, bubblegum and a bit of sugar. Average bodied. I had no idea this was barrel-aged until I entered my rating. Just good.
